Since Harrison attended a 2019 game, it appears that we are recruiting a time traveler. Maybe he can post how the 2019 season is going.
IIRC, Elgin Baylor played for the University of Seattle.
It definitely helps that he can walk the talk with his successful career in the NFL. Plus he seems to really connect well with the recruits.

Is this finally the year for the Indians? Only made the World Series four times in my lifetime. I am probably the jinx as their last championship was 12 months before I was born.
Not surprised that all of the QBs were PRO and none DUAL. Provides a good indication of the direction for Day.
This shouldn't affect the length of a game, other than last two minutes, since a coach is still limited to the number of reviews he can request.
T Mac can be like the Swiss army knife of the NFL with the number of ways he can be utilized.
I agree about Havlicek. He was the captain of those great Buckeye teams. He led preseason conditioning training by running up and down the steps at The Shoe. On the court, he was the Energizer Bunny, never stopped moving.
Yes, McHale did also. They had some height inside with he and Parrish starting together at some point with a 6'8 Bird on the wing.
Lucas, Havlicek, Jackson, Hopson, Conley
Early in his career, he was the 6th man. As the stars from the beginning of their championship run retired, he eventually became a starter and go to scorer. And he played lock down defense and would get the other teams best player, not counting centers.
He was clutch when the game was on the line.
Unfortunately the next two years happened and I saw those games also. In those days, only the league champion went to the tourney and the region was dictated by the league the team was in. The Big Ten was always in the Mideast and the MVC was always in the Midwest. Cincinnati was in the MVC in those days with Creighton, Bradley, and some other really good basketball schools.
Thus, two teams 100 miles apart could not meet until the championship game.
UC had a phenomenal run in the tourney in that time period. Five straight years in the Final Four.
58-59 Finished 3rd behind Oscar Robertson, first player to lead the nation in scoring 3 straight years
59-60 Finished 3rd again with Oscar
60-61 Upset the Buckeyes in OT
61-62 Easily beat the Buckeyes in a rematch
62-63 Lost in OT to Loyola Chicago, last year's darlings, who came back from a 15 point deficit
The only other time that UC went to the Final Four, they were on track to play the Buckeyes in the semifinals, however Jim Jackson missed the shot in 1992 at the end of regulation and that team up north upset them in OT. Of course, the only thing non Buckeyes remember about that season is Laettner's questionable shot to beat UK in the regional final.
My favorite Buckeye moment was also the first sports event that I distinctly remember watching. It was on a grainy black and white, color not yet invented, with lots of snow. However the sound came through just fine and the whole family watched the Buckeyes whip California to win their first and only championship back in 1960.
Interesting how the SEC has picked up their game. A couple of years ago, they only got two teams into the tourney.
I think that the ACC has the better of the deal with 3 #1 seeds with their 7 teams.
You won't regret it. My wife and I plan to go again.
We like FIG (Food Is Good) even better than Husk. We also did Fleet Landing. All three were excellent and reasonable prices for the quality.
If you like architecture, it is a great place for walking. There are a couple of historic houses to visit that provide some history regarding Charleston's role in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars.
We dined at Husk in January on the recommendation of 11W folks and it was wonderful.
As a bit of trivia, fellow Seattle rocker, the late Chris Cornell, inducted them into the Rock and Roll HOF.

I have a two CD greatest hits of theirs and I love every song except for the last few on each disk.
My favorite Heart song and one of the questions in the Scavenger Hunt.
